We had a wonderful tour with our guide Rasim. He was incredibly knowledgeable, and entertaining about the rich history surrounding the Hagia Sophia. We learned so much more than just decideing to pay an entrance fee and walk around. Would go back in a heartbeat as well:)

We were on our own in Istanbul and looking to tour the Hagia Sophia. We weren't looking for a guide, but we met Rasim and he was so friendly and happy to guide us. We had a private tour of both the Underground Cistern and the Hagia Sophia and learned so much more, and saw so much more than had... More

Rasim was the perfect guide. My husband and I were looking for someone to take us around Istanbul for the day. We had already visited many of the highlights and we really wanted to get a flavor of the different neighborhoods on both sides of the Bosphorus. Rasim put together a perfect itinerary and was a consummate professional all day... More

We met Rasim outside Topkapi Palace where he offered to be our guide through the Palace. We were very grateful to have found him as he explained every detail to us and made sure that we understood the Majesty of the place that we were in. His English was excellent and after spending about an hour with him, we had... More

I suggest a tour guide is a must for Hagia Sophia and Rasim ticked all the boxes, we managed to skip all the queues and were in and out in about 1hr 30 mins. Rasim was with us for about 40 minutes and then we were left by ourselves to do more picture taking and finish the ground floor. His... More

Rasim took us through the Hagia Sophia and so glad we took him up on his offer! We buzzed to the front of the line which is always a plus. His knowledge of not only the site but relative history was something we couldn't have gotten from a map. Really enjoyed the extra tid-bits of the history and architecture. Highly... More

We met Rasim outside the Blue Mosque and were initially hesitant as we had been approached by many other operators. He was down to earth and we could immediately see that he wasn't there to take us for a ride! The price was reasonable and fair for the 5 hours we spent with him and it is most definitely worthwhile... More

Yes if you plan to visit Tutkey and Istanbul is a must visit city. Lot of historical places , beautiful people, delicious food, Turkish blue beaches and great shopping places. Guide services are very good and helpful if you plan to visit historical places as you get the maximum information which is otherwise very difficult to get.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
